Re: 99 Grand Cherokee brakes?

Probably has the teves calipers. Easy way to tell is that the teves calipers have a retaining spring/ wire thingy, which you can easily see here;



This is a teves caliper. The akebono is effectively in one piece. You'll find that the teves calipers will cause your discs to warp, due to uneven wear.

All 1999-2002 Grand Cherokee WJ models built through May 10, 2002 came equipped with brake calipers made by Teves. They are black in color with an open-sided bracket design. So you most likely have Teves as Stone "Louis C.K." Cold mentioned lol
